In the WSJ Joe Trippi shows exactly why his candidate got roasted in the primary and the Dems went on to field a loser. He seems to think that Kerry actually ran to the middle! He obviously hates that part of the Democratic party that the DLC represents, but listen, Joe, those are the people who elected Bill Clinton. Twice.
And check this out:
The Democratic Party has to be the vehicle that empowers the American people to change our failed political system. We all know the damn thing is broken. Democrats should lead the way by placing stricter money restrictions on candidates than the toothless Federal Election Commission does. A party funded by contributions from the people can do this. A corrupted and corroded party cannot. The Democratic Party shouldn't wait for campaign-finance reform--it should be campaign-finance reform.
What is he talking about? 27 million from George Soros wasn't enough? Or is he forswearing 527s and going door-to-door to collect old ladies' pension money?
Trippi contends that all the good ideas come from the left. Really. Howard Dean didn't lose because of the srcream, but because other than his few lefty sophomores who just want to get along, no one in the country thought that he had any idea whatsoever to do about global terrorism.
There's a battle going on for the future of the Democratic party. If the Dean/Trippi wing gets the upper hand, look forward to more years of one-party rule.
